If you’ve ever had pictures before and dread the thought of ever having any done again, you are not alone! My own husband HATES them with a passion LOL
This will NOT be one of those sessions. I’m very relaxed and want you to be too. Capturing the real you is what I want. Sure at times I’ll ask you to smile or not smile or turn a bit one way, but those times are few.
I follow kids around while they play. I lay on the ground to get the angle I need. I’ve even been known to ruin an incredible pair of pumps just to get the shot! There will be lots of laughing (so come with your best joke), lots of smiles and hopefully you’ll not only leave with amazing photos, but with a new outlook on the whole experience.
Once your session is booked, you will get a prep guide that will walk you through the process so you know what to expect.
On the day of pictures, keep your kids well fed and rested. Try not to change nap times or routines as kids can be sensitive to those things. If it’s the first time we’ve met, I will immediately gravitate to your kids. With the camera at my side, I will ask them questions and try to build a little trust with them. Usually it just takes a few minutes and a couple well intentioned jokes and we will hit it off. This time is important in order for you to get the shots we want later. AND if your children take a little longer to warm up, DON’T STRESS! I’ve NEVER done a full session with a reluctant child. It might take bribes (treats in my bag), it might take animal noises (please don’t judge) and it might take potty humor (whatever it takes) but they eventually will get on board and we will have a great time together!
With that in mind, it’s your job to prep your hubby and make sure he’s following suit as most are not as easily persuaded by chicken bocks as their kids are 😉
I ADORE NEWBORNS!! Newborn shots are done within 10 days of birth. You’ll want to book your session a month in advance and then we will chat and pin point the date better as it gets closer. I have a whole packet dedicated to what to expect during this session to put your mind at ease. It is a fun session and one you do not want to miss!
I like to take maternity shots at about the 7-8 month mark. You still feel relatively good and I don’t have to worry about my delivery skills. These can be done in studio or on location. I want you to be comfortable while showcasing this amazing time in your life! Husbands and other children are welcome to join for a few shots
AFTER THE SHOOT
I will rush home and start downloading the images. Once they are downloaded and backed up, I will start my magic on them! The best ones will be chosen and editing will begin. There’s a lot that goes into finalizing a great shot so be patient with me as I mold each one into the images you see on here. Between edits I am still a chauffeur, chef (a little bit), tutor, shoulder to cry on, sister, and more. So I appreciate your understanding and excitement while I prepare your images.
Approx 2 weeks (3 weeks during Sept-Nov) after your session, you will receive an email with your image gallery link, coupon code and additional details.
